Josh Groban Concert

Last week a friend gave me 2 tickets to the Josh Groban Concert.  
Thanks Aaron! :) 
So Andy and I drove to Lowell to take the T to TD Garden in Boston.

It was a wonderful concert.  
Josh Groban has a phenomenal voice 
and I loved his interaction with the audience.
 He asked the audience at the beginning of the show to text him questions.
One girl asked "Will you sing with my sister?"
 This is what happened~

I don't know who she is, 
but she was fantastic!

Of course, "You Raise Me Up" was the final encore and highlight.
A nice way to spend an evening...
What was the last concert you attended?

I'm teaching at our very first Summer Garden Club this week at school.

Yesterday the kids were having a wonderful time weeding and making discoveries
until one of them discovered a bee's nest!  
Four out of five of our kids got stung, some several times!
Praying that today they all come back...
and that there's no more painful encounters with nature!

See you in a few days!

Lightning McQueen Mural

 When my daughter moved into her house 
(Has it really been almost two years?)
she asked if I'd paint aLightning McQueen mural in Dayton's room.
I agreed to do it.  I got the paint.  I outlined the car.
And never got it finished!
Until now!
Happy dance!
The raceway is chalkboard paint, so you can write messages or draw pictures on it.
You can't see the two windows in these pics, but the only thing left to do is window treatments.  
I've looking for checkered raceway banners to pin up but I think I'll have to order them online.

I wanted it to finally be done before the annual 4th of July party at their house.
I couldn't have been happier when I heard Dayton say to one of Jade's friends,
" Look at my room.  My Gramma painted it all by herself."
and "Thank you, Gramma."
